Delaware to feel brunt of Nor'easter

It's not Sandy, but a Nor'easter heading our way is primed to do some damage, especially at the beach areas, including Delaware.

AccuWeather's Dr. Joe Sobel says because the shore areas, including Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey, were so ravaged by Sandy last week, the high winds and rain will be met by little resistance from dunes that are no longer protective.

"Ordinarily, this kind of a Nor'easter would be no big deal. It's the kind of storm that we several times each winter. But you know a lot of the beach areas have been damaged, they're susceptible, they're vulnerable to tide rises," saus Sobel.



Delaware is expected to get wind gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour on Wednesday with an inch or more of rain.
